Instead of Second Chance 2008 which I decided would be too taxing, can I be put down for "Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame Class Of 2017" like how I did 16 this year and 15 last. US #1's of 1981 in place of Second Chance 2009

Is it already allowed to reserve a spot for Ed Sheeran's "÷" even if there's no release date yet?

I'll keep the Second Chance's as originally planned, but I do plan to do one genre at a time, but also making it three years at spell as well (2008-2010, 2011-2013, etc...) ... one for pop, one for urban and one for rock. That way each genre gets a fair shake. So for 2008, it'll be 2008-2010 Pop, and 2008-2010 Urban in place where 2009 is 8-)

THEME
The 123 Worst Musicians of All Time

this article pretty much insults 123 artists including legends like Madonna, MJ, Winehouse, Bjork or Bowie, but it's hilarious :lol:

SURVIVOR RULES & GUIDELINES

1. Survivors must be updated daily or every two days. If the host does not comply with this, a moderator will post a reminder in the survivor thread that it needs to be updated. If it hasn't been updated with the next few hours, a moderator will update the survivor themselves - regardless of what format the survivor is taking.

2. If a moderator has to frequently remind a host to update a survivor, then the host will lose some of their survivor privileges. Currently, there are three categories of Survivors; Artist, Theme and Album - and every user can have up to two survivors in each queue at one time. However, if the host has a bad record at updating their survivors, then they will only be allowed to have one survivor in each queue - meaning they'll have to wait twice as long to start their next one. Think of 3 reminders per survivor as frequent.

3. Use some initiative. If your survivor attracts 4 regular participants and they've all voted within a few hours, there may not be any need to keep it open for 48-72 hours.

4. Do not drag out your survivors forever. Only when you're down to the final 5-6 songs should single eliminations take place. If you're not in the top 20, then you should be eliminating more than two songs per round. Sometimes there may be a tie between a large number of songs - tiebreak situations are fine in this instance. However, if you had 18 songs left, and there was a tie between 3 songs - it's probably worthwhile just getting rid of all 3.

5. Modifying votes. This is something which is somewhat controversial - users editing their votes after seeing what the following votes are. I don't want to make a rule on this - it's up to the host and the host can make it clear during their survivor how they feel about this.

6. Have fun!

Theme: "The Forgotten US #1 Hits". Many artists who have had multiple #1s have that single or two that somehow everyone forgets was a #1 and gets lost in the shuffle with their other big hits (for example, Mariah's I Don't Wanna Cry or Madonna's This Used To Be My Playground), this would be these songs given their chance to finally shine.
